What to Expect Fly to Cairo from Sharm el-Sheikh to enjoy a private tour of this world-famous city. You'll visit Cairo's most amazing sites including the Great Pyramids and Sphinx, Egyptian Museum and Khan el-Khalili bazaar.
Following your flight to Cairo, your Egyptologist guide will introduce you to the history of the pyramids. You will have time to enter one of the pyramids, should you choose. A short drive across the plateau finds you standing at the feet of the enigmatic Sphinx. Also in Giza, you may choose to visit the Solar Boat Museum, home to the remarkably well-preserved funerary boat of Khufu.
Cairo's famous Egyptian Museum houses 165,000 Egyptian artifacts, with the highlight being the priceless treasures of King Tutankhamun. His six gilded coffins dominate the main hall, while his magnificent death mask is the star attraction.
Continuing to Khan el Khalili bazaar, you'll enjoy free time to stroll through the maze of streets and bargain for souvenirs. You'll also have the chance to visit the Papyrus Institute to see how the famous artwork is made before flying back to Sharm el-Sheikh.
